This bill provides assistance for certain individuals who own or are starting a microenterprise business. A microenterprise is a commercial enterprise that has five or fewer employees, one or more of whom owns the enterprise. The bill amends the counseling requirements to be offered at One Stop Career Centers to include an evaluation of an individual's ability to engage in self-employment training, information about self-employment training opportunities, and information about the success of past participants in such training. The bill clarifies that individuals seeking to embark upon microenterprise self-employment ventures will be counseled by qualified business counselors rather than qualified job counselors. Further, the bill requires the Department of Community Affairs to give emphasis to project applications that involve the development or expansion of a microenterprise, benefit low and moderate income neighborhoods, and improve the quality of life for neighborhood residents when the department determines whether projects proposed for eligibility by nonprofit organizations under the Neighborhood Revitalization Tax Credit Program qualify to receive tax credits under that program.
